Lemony Bear Filet Crochet Baby Afghan

28 posts in this topic

Hope you like this pattern! Please tell me what you think!

 

I designed this filet piece as a project you could get done in a week-end. I used Bernat Softee that I doubled. If you wanted to, a single strand of a soft worsted would make be a good substitute. I do like how the 2 strands of baby yarn feel, though.

 

I have given my own directions for the extended double crochet in my own words. If you would like to make the bear in double crochet, go right ahead! It will just be a little squat but still charming. Feel free to weave a ribbon through the holes of his bow tie.

Hi Maria - Thank you - soooo much for the graph. Just to let you know I used it to make an afghan for a new baby called Sam. I used I Love This Yarn in Crayon for the background and Pattons double knitting wool in a dark blue shade for the teddy and to put his name across the top. I did the background in sc and the name and teddy in puff stitch. His Mum just loved it!
